COMMENTS

The least significant digits are a sequence of period length 4: 3,5,9,3.

One could extend A014217 using its recurrence to define A014217(-1)=-1. This would add a(-1)=3 here by definition, and the least significant digits would still follow the (same, wrapped) period of length 4: 3,3,5,9.

FORMULA

a(2n+2)=a(2n+1)+a(2n)+1. a(2n+3)=a(2n+2)+a(2n+1)-1.

a(n)=2*a(n-2)+a(n-3) = (-1)^n+2*A000032(n+1). G.f.: (3+5x+3x^2)/ ((1+x)(1-x-x^2)). [From R. J. Mathar, Feb 07 2009, Apr 18 2009]

a(n)+a(n+1) = A022112(n+2). - R. J. Mathar, Feb 25 2013
